Through The Lens
1. How did you get into aviation photography?
The passion for aviation has been present ever since I can remember. Having no family members connected to the aviation industry, it has always puzzled people why I have such a strong passion for it. I got into the photography side of it in 2016 when my younger brother got a DSLR. Before this, I’d go out to the airport and film videos for my YouTube channel. However, the DSLR opened my eyes to the creative aspect of photography, which I fell in love with.
2. Why aviation photography?
Aviation photography provides me with a creative outlet. I love the excitement of going out to the airport and nailing the perfect shot and then getting to share it with the world. I also enjoy the social side of it. I have made many friends because of the shared passion, not just locally but globally as well.
3. Is this something you do as a hobby or is it a commercial operation for you?
Aviation photography is a hobby for me. However, from 2017-2020 I worked part-time for Matt Hall Racing as a photographer and videographer. This opportunity allowed my eyes to be opened to the corporate side of content creation and at times had me contemplating the prospects of a commercial operation. Due to my main passion being laying in flying, I have not pursued a commercial career in photography.
